Amid continuing violence in West Bengal following the Lok Sabha elections, West Bengal Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi on Monday met Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Home Minister Amit Shah and apprised them of the situation in the state.
"I couldn't wish him personally on the swearing-in day, hence this is a courtesy visit," said the Governor whose tenure ends on July 23.
The Governor's meetings with Modi and Shah came a day after the Ministry of Home Affairs sent a strongly-worded advisory to the West Bengal government for its "complete failure" to control the unabated post-poll violence in the state. The MHA had expressed strong concerns over the tense situation in the state.
The Mamata Banerjee government says the situation in West Bengal was "under control" and "firm and appropriate action" was taken following "stray post-election clashes" in the state.
He said though the Centre hadn't interfered in the governance of the state, it may think about imposing President's Rule there if the violence, which began before the general elections, doesn't end.
